Its the Capo "Ace 1" - Some sweet details, but I wonder what the $$$ will be. Also, Capo doesn't have a great reputation for strength/reliability from what I have seen on YT: Tatra truck (see RC Adventrures) and Jeep JK (see Harley) were both pretty, but fragile.

Anyhoo, linkies:

Well I got the tatra and the jeep and use them flawlessly.
The only thing I broke was due to the fact I forgotted to put threadlock on my shocks screw

We are a few capo jeep users in France and none of us have broke anything due to reliability, theses rigs are full metal and heacy so we have to drive them accordingly to that wheight

Anyway I can't wait to have a Ace1 to test it and put a good brushless combo in it

Wish I was going, but the Mrs broke her collar bone recently :omg: so need to be at home to hold the fort, calm the natives and exercise the hounds.

I hope the weather is kind to everyone going and your rigs hold up. See y'all at the next LSTR :wave:

Hello guys, I this month's comp might be my first, so I'm finishing my landy in order to ramp up its scale points but I have a few questions:

1- Is the 2016 the current LSTR comp rules?
2- What's the maximum scale points awarded to class 1?
3- A few weeks ago I received my first set of 4.19" tyres and went to Epping forest for testing. My car is a G2 D90 and I noticed that with this size tyres I really needed to increase the ride height to prevent the tyres from rubbing heavily onto the fender flares. I don't want to go about blindly trimming the body shell and then be kicked out of C1 so better to ask first:

As I understood from the SORRCA rules set, which btw, is very difficult to understand, specially because eng is not my 1st language; it's filled with grammatical errors and jargons, like the example below:

Quote:

• The vehicles body must be mostly intact. Only mild trimming such as flairs & removing a hardtop are allowed.
According to Oxford dictionary:

Quote:

‘Flair’ or ‘flare’? What's the difference?

Although pronounced identically, flair and flare have different meanings. So what is the difference? The following explanation and quiz should give you a flair for telling the difference between the two.

Flair is a noun and means 'a natural ability or talent', as in:

She had a flair for languages.

None of us had much artistic flair.

Flare however can appear as a noun and a verb. The noun can mean a number of things, in particular:

A burst of light or flame – the flare of a match
a device used to produce a flame – a distress flare
a sudden burst of emotion – a flare of rage
A sudden recurrence of an inflammation or other medical condition – a flare up of eczema
A sudden explosion in the chromosphere and corona of the sun or another star – a solar flare
Illumination on film caused by internal reflection in a camera – a lens flare
Trousers whose legs get progressively wider from the knees down – a pair of flares
An upward and outward curve of a ship's bows, designed to throw the water outwards when in motion
I assume that the sorrca guy meant trimming the flares, fender flares, (not the flairs!) although I can't be 100% sure cause "flairs" could still be a jargon for something else like plastic rivets left over from the injection molding or...who knows? :D

So, am I allowed to trim the fender flares of my D90 to better fit the new tyres? If so, how much?

Cheers

Basically cl1 is something you would see on the road (1-1)mot etc
1yes
2 61i believe
3,max tyre size 106mm,you can trim your arches ,but half the thread must be covered .
